Want to purchase all 3 tracks on the Lovesick EP (Lovesick, Vapors, The Timbers) but having difficulties simply trying to find these tracks via multiple music/mp3/flac/etc search engines. The closest I came to tracking these songs was on U.K. iTunes Store....However, I live in U.S. & cannot make any purchases with different currencies.
I like how during his review of Let the People Speak, Ian Cohen found a way to namedrop Lil B and show Bloodhound Gang knowledge in a single paragraph. Way to connect with your readerships lowest common denominators.
The fantastic Black Suit just randomly played in my lastfm radio station, such an under appreciated project from from Frank. LP track listing is out 1. The Lopsided World of L ... 2. See Thru You ... 3. White Out ... 4. Where is John Frum ... 5. Annie Bliss ... 6. Illiterate Lovers ... 7. Dark Sparkles and the Beat ... 8. Silver Bosy ... 9. Two Lies and One Truth ... 10. Face (If You Could See My) ... 11. Esther ... 12. R.O.T.C. ... 13. Let the People Speak
This is the most invested in a project Frank's been in a long time. I heard somewhere that a person can change completely in 7 years, provided there's a different environment and different circumstances, and I can't think of a much bigger lifestyle change than fatherhood (not to mention the breakup and new marriage). This is the newest Charles Kitteredge Thompson the IV: able to play support, able to compromise, able to lay down a bitchin' rhythm guitar and a few screams and let it at that. Also not out to destroy the 80s.
If you compare each phase to each other, you'll come off disappointed. Treat Pixies as different from Frank Black; treat FB as different from FB and the Catholics; treat FB&tC as different from Black Francis; and treat Grand Duchy as something new. Also? Give these two another album to sharpen up. I'll admit to not liking every song on here (I actually hate Fort Wayne), but there's plenty of good stuff here (like Black Suit or Lovesick).
